    Default Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP)

    Lets all contribute pics and memories to this timeless classic that has faithfully served generations. It is my 1st car memory and my dad who is a Beetle enthusiast at one time had a total of 4 beetles in our garage Here's a little history of this miraculous German wonder: 'The history of the Beetle really goes back to pre 2nd world war Germany when Ferdinand Porsche had a vision of a mass produced vehicle that was affordable to the average German, an idea that was shared with the young Adolf Hitler who himself could not drive, but was a car fanatic. Hitler was apparently influenced by the achievements of Henry Ford and his production lines - reading Ford's biography while in prison during 1923. Porsche had previously worked on some other small cars that used many elements later to be included in the Beetle. The Type 32 prototype NSU of 1934 was an air-cooled rear engined four cylinder horizontally opposed powered car that used torsion bar suspension and featured beetle-like styling.' --- source - Google.co.uk lets keep the posts rolling - add pics of bugs you've owned or own! I'll add my dad's bug family pics as well ... I guess he fell in love with this oddly shaped car after he drove it down to Pakistan from Germany!!!! .. stories of that wonderous journey keep us entertained whenever our family gets together

    Hey,

    I have an ongoing project bug. I'll share some pictures soon. I need help.

    1) Im really confused on color choice. I'm thinking a shade of red. Plus i'm scared that the color i choose wouldn't turn out good.

    2) I have a relative that is coming to Pakistan soon, so i thought of getting stuff that aren't available here. For example, the tid bits of rubbers. The frame for the swivel window on the door. I have a list. The problem is, i dont really know where to order from and where to get them cheap. I don't want to spend a major chunk of the budget on expensive cosmetics.

    I would really appreciate some guidance.

    Here is the car in question.Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -213059

    Default I wonder who owns my 1302 now

    A VDubber remains a VDubber even if for any reason, one has a change of heart. I have owned / restored a few VW Beetles in the past but in persuit of perfection I kinda lost interest. I am glad my Type 182 (Thing) ended up with an enthusiast like Storm but I have not seen my 1302 lately. I can't stop cursing myself for letting her go - pampered her like a babby for 3 years.... Here are a few pics. Does anyone know the current owner and the whereabouts and condition of this car? If my ropey memory serves well, the registration number was RIH something!

    razak bhai, doesn't your car now belong to Jag in khi? (pw member).

    for some reason i recall seeing him post up these pics a while back,... or maybe my mind is playing tricks on me.

    @Storm,
    These pictures were taken in Blue Area, back in 2003 when I was shuttling between Kabul and Islamabad just to bring this restoration to an end - you can tell from the tan on my face in one of the pictures. Frequent visits to Puppoo, Muqeem and Khalid not to mention 13 hours tiring drives between Kabul and Isloo just to sneak hard-to-find parts for my car and friends (struts, disk rotors, switches, callipers, steering boxes..... the list goes on). She may have ended up in Karachi but my friend tells me that she was seen a few weeks ago in F-10; in appaling state.

    Great to see Razak bhais posts here.

    Jag owned a standard 1500 1970 bug if memory serves me right. It was definitely *not* a 1302 that I'm sure of.

    I am very sorry to hear that such a nice bug ended up in the wrong hands. Have often seen this phenomenon, unfortunately. This is why I advocate that when one restores a VW, one must plan to keep it long term and if and when the time comes, one must sell to the right person, either, ideally a VW lover or to a 'normal' person for good money so that the car is not treated like crap.

    Its sad to note that most people always put a monetary value on things, VWs included. If they get the bug for a good price they would probably take care of it. Otherwise they'd treat it as a 'tees chalees hazar ki gari'......

    I hope with all my heart that this particular car is discovered and rescued from the hands of the owner who ruined it ruthlessly.

    To my belief; No one has lowered/raised his Bug for that matter as done abroad. Obviously it is very much possible because people are doing it abroad but I am not sure if this can be attained here in Pakistan with all these desi panel beaters/mechanics.

    @All

    Please correct me if I am wrong.

    of course you can lower the car, just ask our expert KP! he tried it, but quickly came back to normal height when (I suspect, he found out the height of all speedbreakers here)
    If it aint broke dont fix it is my advice.

    ok 4get about lowering the car!! What about a decent painter in ISB who does a cracking job at painting your car?

    Again any recommendations of painters who have done a great job before? ANd what will be the approximate cost? Reason why I am asking this is because I am not in ISB most of the time and don't want to go to any cowboy and get ripped off!

    Even though I cant attend still a VW Meet of KHI Chapter would be a great idea as we just had a Mini Car Show at ISL; VWCOP ISL Chapter attended (even though we haven't seen many of the pictures here on PW - I hope we doon do).

    Good luck with the Meet!

    Count me in MJ
    A car for the people, an affordable Volkswagen, would bring great joy to the masses and the problems of building such a car must be faced with courage.
